A few interesting points lept out.

A woman convert to mormonism from England in the 19th century, was GLAD that her son died from cold exhaustion, and hunger on the long trek to Utah. 

Some-one commenting on the mountains meadows massacre, said that people can do anything at all, even kill if they believe that they are following the will of god.

I don’t have a good short term memory so that’s all that I can remember.  But it reminded me of just how totalitarian religion is, and how wrong and immoral it is for people to give up their individuality and freedom to a religious creed.
